Description:

Hello, are you looking for a ski / snowboard course in Zakopane, only 100km...

Hello, are you looking for a ski / snowboard course in Zakopane, only 100km far from Krakow (and the Balice airport)? I hope you will be able to choose one which suits you best: QUICK START - half day ski / snowboard course is dedicated for those who just want to try skiing or snowboarding. This is the best option for travellers planning one day ski trip from Krakow. MINI SKI or SNOWBOARD COURSE is recommended for those who would like to take part in all the other activities available in Zakopane. After four hours on the ski slope you will have plenty of time for snowmobile trips, sleigh ride, Kasprowy Wierch cable car ride, walking, shopping etc. Note please that the ski lessons can be provided also in the afternoon so if you plan some other activities in the morning just let me know. SKI / SNOWBOARD COURSE with all days ski passes included is recommend for those, who are going to span all days on the slopes. If skiing (snowboarding) is the main goal of your trip to Zakopane you should choose this course. See you in Zakopane! Barbara

We were picked up from Krakow and taken to our hotel in Zakopane. Barbara came to see us that evening to explain how everything worked and to give us... More

Really good. Booked lessons to suit, either one on one or as group. We booked as a family group which worked out really well. Piotr ou instructor spoke excellent English and was very patient with our mixed abilities.happily recommend.

Did the quick start ski course with my boyfriend this weekend. We were staying in Krakow and got the bus to Zakopane to ski for the day. The tour group picked us up at the grand stamary hotel just 2 minutes from the bus station and took us to the slopes(Nosal). We were giving boots, gloves, skiis and ski sticks... More

I have contacted school by email, after 5 days I called and speak to Barbara where she promised to make an arrangement and send me all details via email. 7 days later I write an email again and never ever heard from them...

Dear Sandra, I'd like to inform you that I do not run any ski school with any staff answering e-mails but I am just an independent ski instructor who spends days on the slopes teaching skiing and afternoons and early mornings at the computer.

This was my first skiing experience, my husband's first experience after 35 years, and our 17 year old daughter's second in 3 years, so we were all at different standards, but Pani Basia set up lessons according to our different skiing standards and catering for...

Barbara and her dad organised our first ski trip to zakopane over a 3 day vacation. Very well organised and prompt travel arrangements to make it as relaxed as possible for us. Nothing missed, a seamless trip. Good mixture of slopes and challenges. Will return next year for another top customer experience
